Current Miss Pacific Islands Anne Dunn has joined the South Pacific Tourism Organization (SPTO) for promoting sustainable and responsible tourism, not only for Fiji but the entire Pacific region. According to SPTO CEO Christopher Cocker, “Our culture, environment and our people are our greatest tourism assets and it is our responsibility to ensure their sustainability. I am pleased that Miss Pacific Islands has joined us in our initiatives to promote sustainable and responsible tourism for not just Fiji but the entire Pacific region.”
On behalf of the SPTO, Miss Dunn recently launched a sustainable tourism campaign on social media. To quote Dunn, “Sustainable tourism for me is about preserving and sharing our unique South Pacific islands and cultures with the world. It’s about being responsible as hosts and visitors to our beautiful yet fragile island ecosystems.”
She is working with SPTO for promoting the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. This global campaign asks people in the Pacific and travellers from the around the world to share their thoughts on sustainable tourism through personal photographs, videos, stories and ideas on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the hashtags #travelenjoyrespect and #SouthPacificIslands. The winner will be announced on May 20 at the South Pacific Tourism Exchange in Sydney with a trip to the South Pacific.
